Don’t Let Social Media Destroy Your Compliance


The prevalence of social media has seeped into all aspects of our lives, including healthcare. But healthcare industry professionals face unique and significant compliance pitfalls—including privacy, security, and HIPAA concerns—when tangling with social media.

In this live webinar, learn how to navigate all key compliance issues, including: using social media for marketing purposes, setting social media policies for employees, ownership of social media content, and social media as part of the medical record. Attorney and healthcare compliance expert Kim Stanger will reveal how to spot potential liabilities—and how to mitigate your risks by establishing appropriate social media policies.

After attending this instructive session, you will have the expert insights and tools you need to identify and minimize regulatory and liability risks linked to social media. You’ll be able to draft your own social media policy using a sample policy and put into place appropriate consequences for potential violations—so that one errant employee doesn’t sink the whole ship.
